Data Science Tutors

What is the Data Science Tutor Program? 

Data Science Tutors (DSTs) are R&ID Research Tutors who specialize in data science. During their shifts, they can assist students with understanding and interpreting data, providing peer research assistance, and instructing them in the use of data analysis tools. We have four Data Science Tutors in Spring '23: Arianna Chai, Siqi Fang, Whitney Hintz, and Alan Zhao. See their friendly faces here
